Maybe you thought the public outcry for Black Widow toys—backed even by Avengers: Age of Ultron cast members—would have reached the lofty towers of Disney/Marvel merchandising by now. You’d be wrong.

It’s the badass motorcycle that Black Widow rode in the movie during that sprawling South Korea chase sequence. Remember? The one where she says, “I’m always picking up after you boys?” The one where she saves the day and risks her life to secure the cradle away from Ultron and his evil schemes? Well, it’s cool if you forgot because apparently Disney/Marvel did too and they made the damn movie.

But that’s not all! The Mary Sue shared a few more playsets that retcon Avengers: Age of Ultron to downplay Black Widow’s involvement:
